With the chickens, we get lotsa' eggs, well most of the time. Here's a simple recipe for hard boiled eggs that have no green ring and a great consistancy.
In a small saucepan, fill two thirds with water and add four or so eggs. Make sure all of the eggs are under the water.
Heat on medium high or high until it comes to a boil. When it does, remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes. Then run cold water into the pan until cool enough to handle. Peal and eat.
Works every time
